Welcoming Winter Across The Blue

On the other side of the Pacific the Solstice holiday is often celebrated with tang yuan, glorious little balls of glutinous rice flour which may or may not be filled and are traditionally served in a clear broth or covered in ginger syrup. Symbols of family unity, the turning over of a new year and the coming of longer brighter days, these optimistic orbs are often vibrantly hued and will quickly disappear due to extreme yumfulness!  :)

Have you ever tried tang yuan? What's your favorite filling? Are traditional foods part of your Winter Solstice celebration?
